Lots of oranges still on the trees in the nearby orchards (well, a couple of miles away).  These two went through three layers in PSE.  Background – original, Layer 1 – Topaz Detail, Layer 2 – Topaz Simplify at 69% Opacity.  I then did some burning all over the photo.  Have a good weekend!

Original photo camera settings: F/4.5, 1/220 sec., ISO 64, focal length 10.4 mm.

  1. I love the effect you achieved here, soo much depth. Very cool!!

  2. I love the sketch like effect and the vivid colors…and of course, the depth! 🙂 I wish we had fresh oranges growing around here….right now the oranges in our super markets really are not very good!

  3. I love the fact that the homegrown element is so highlighted, not those perfect oranges you see in supermarkets, you just know these are going to be juicy sweet, just like your photo.

  4. Nicely done. I suppose I’ll have to check out Topaz as soon as I finish my Photoshop classes…some really cool effects here.

  5. Oh, that is lovely! The jewel-like colors catch the eye (I’m especially fond of the glimpses of intense blue.) It gives the effect of a pen and watercolor illustration.

  6. I LOVE THIS!!!!! Even though I am not a big fan of intruding too much on my own photos (mostly because I know not how to LOL)..I really love seeing what you do with yours…this effect is awesome and I love the finished image!

  7. Super effect, Doris! It looks like an old orange crate illustration. California navel oranges keep me going through the long winters here…

  8. I like the drawing effect too. Somewhat like pen and ink drawings. Very nice.

  9. Love the great vivid colors.

  10. The depth of the colors is gorgeous. I love the sketch effect. Now to go get a glass of orange juice.

  11. Great Topaz effect. I love OJ.

  12. B-E-A-UTIFUL! Makes me want to go buy oranges and eat em up!
